PoF / Wrongful account suspension

1 Australia Review updated:
Contact information:

POF deleted my account after I sent someone I had been chatting to for ages a slightly naughty message. I had read the recent inbox pertaining to rule changes and altered my conduct accordingly but the next time I went to log in my account was gone and I could not register again. The worst part is that the person I had been chatting with was as interested as I was, and we were verging on meeting. We had not swapped contact information though and as a result I will never hear from that person again. Thanks for wasting my time Markus Frind. Not only did you not help with my search for love, you hindered it. I would advise people to boycott this site. There is no such thing as a free lunch and the administrator comes across as a total control freak. Since when are members on a site treated with such disdain? He/They are marketing to a select crowd and if you don't fit the bill you are out of there. The site is therefore not as useful for finding love as it claims. You will only find people Markus Frind deems acceptable for you to find, and be prepared to have your account privileges revoked without so much as an explanation or a notification.

I also want to add that Markus Frind is taking an active interest in the private messages of users and I find that to be intrusive and unsettling. Being blocked from the site for what you put in a private message with no complaint from the recipient is a level of big brotherish interference that I find suspicious. It's already been highlighted that POF does not adequately protect the personal information of users that it collects. There is such a thing as getting too personal in my opinion, and that's just what POF does. You think it's just to help you find the right match but they are vetting their users.

    Please boycott this site in your efforts to find love, there are better sites such as e-harmony or adult matchmaker and with POF you really get what you pay for, which is nothing.

    POF - Disrimination
    21 Starthistle Ln.

    pof.com is suppose to be a free dating site. But it actually discriminates against gender and age. It will not allow me to search locally for anyone under 40 to 50's. When I try to do a new search for age limit's 24 to 45 the search comes back at 0 and says "eldest means oldest" and goes too 45 to 55 for review of women. Cannot edit search for younger dates, , is this site intentionally trying to say that I cannot date anyone between ages 24 and 55? I Think consulting a Lawyer who handles these kinds of cases could prove to change this sites discrimination problems.

    That Markus dude tripping. Stop my upgrade because I had a picture showing my bare torso which had been up there for over a year. It wasn't a problem until I called to complain about something. I want my money back.

    I agree with Learn to Read. Also be very careful about meeting people online! Watch the Craigslist Killer and you'll think twice!
